    Wanted Enzo Borka 90 scandi

    As the title, looking to see if anyone is selling an Enzo Borka with scandi grind. Really love my PK70 for everyday carry so looking for a locking model for more rugged use. Might consider a Birk if the price was tempting enough.

    Latest leather book. This time with pyrography decoration.
